Most festivals have a Pre-show event, and this one was a good opportunity to see the popular Austrian band Edenbridge up-close in the tiny Junction 7 venue in nearby Nottingham. On first, however, were the excellent Season's End, whose inventive form of intricate, atmospheric Gothic Metal has already been featured on Musical Discoveries (review). The good news is that they are an excellent live act, despite struggling to fit all six of them onto such a tiny stage, and the band's own strobe light was used to good effect. As well as playing 4 songs from their very promising Failing Light album, they also showcased to new pieces "Evermore" and "Into the Flames" in a 45-minute set that seemed to fly by. As a live act they have lost none of their intricacy with David Stanton and Becki Clarke's vocals blending beautifully, and all six of the musicians serving the material with skill.
